Kari Lake disagrees with the election results in Arizona, and she says of the upcoming legal battle, “It’s Going to Be Real Ugly.”

Kari Lake, a Republican from Arizona, says she will fight the results of her race with Secretary of State Katie Hobbs for the governor’s office in court.

Hobbs won by about 17,000 votes over Lake on Monday, and Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, Attorney General Mark Brnovich, and state Supreme Court Chief Justice Robert Brutinel were there to see it, according to ABC News.

Now that the certification is done, Lake has five days to challenge the certification in court.

“We’re ready to start what we think is a very good lawsuit. And we think we’ll win that lawsuit,” Lake told “War Room” host Steve Bannon on Real America’s Voice.

“If we have to, we’ll take it to the Supreme Court. We won’t give up the fight. Because the people of Arizona didn’t have the right to vote,” she said.

She means both the Supreme Court of Arizona and the Supreme Court of the United States.

“As our Arizona Constitution says, the voters who went to the polls on Election Day lost their right to vote,” Lake said.

“Nobody believes Katie Hobbs won. “Katie Hobbs knows she didn’t win, I’m sure,” Lake said.

The Republican said, “It’s going to get really ugly” if Arizonans don’t believe Hobbs won and she tries to run the state.

In the six weeks before the election, Lake was ahead in almost every poll. In one poll by the local Fox affiliate in late October, she was ahead by more than 10 points.

On Election Day, the average of the polls done by RealClearPolitics showed that Lake had a 3.5 percent lead over Hobbs. However, Hobbs won by 0.6 percent.

Blake Masters, a Republican running for the U.S. Senate, also lost to Sen. Mark Kelly, who was already in office, by about 5%, or about 125,000 votes. This loss is easier to understand.

Masters’ popularity went up, which showed up in polls in late October and early November. This let him close the gap with Kelly until they were tied.

The fact that early voting in the Grand Canyon State started on October 12 made it harder for Masters to pull off the upset with a late surge. Kelly had been collecting votes for weeks.

Masters and Lake’s chances of winning were also hurt by the chaos on Election Day in Maricopa County, the area around Phoenix. According to the county, ballot tabulators and printers didn’t work at 71 polling places, but the Lake campaign says the number is 114, or 53 percent of the sites.

Even though all the machines had to be tested and ballot printers were used for early voting, strange, widespread problems still happened that probably affected thousands of people who wanted to vote.

Multiple places with these problems had lines that went on for hours. The Lake campaign said that since Republicans voted 3-to-1 over Democrats on Election Day, this was a large-scale attempt to keep her supporters from voting.

Multiple places with these problems had lines that went on for hours. The Lake campaign said that since Republicans voted 3-to-1 over Democrats on Election Day, this was a large-scale attempt to keep her supporters from voting.

I saw this firsthand in the ruby-red neighbourhood of Anthem on the north side of Phoenix, where the line was about two hours long at noon and 6 p.m.

Last week, poll worker Mike Peterson told the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors that hundreds of people who voted at his polling place in the Phoenix neighbourhood of Paradise Valley had their votes taken away.

Peterson said 675 people who wanted to vote were in line when his polling place closed at 7 p.m. People who wanted to vote could have stayed in line and waited to vote, but most of them gave up.

“Do you know how many of those 675 came in? The number is 150. It means that you have deprived voters of their right to vote. “They’ve come, seen what’s going on, and given up because they know what’s happening,” he said.

In other words, more than 500 people wanted to vote but didn’t do it, and that was just the voters who came to one site near the end of Election Day.

This number doesn’t include people who might have given up because there were too many people in line during the day.

Given that there are about 17,000 votes between Lake and Hobbs, it would take about 240 Lake supporters not being able to vote or being discouraged from voting in each of the 70 polling stations that didn’t work right for the difference to be made. If the number of places where problems happened at the polls was 114, that would mean 149 voters per place.

No doubt, these kinds of numbers will be at the heart of Lake’s lawsuit. Along with issues brought up by the Arizona Attorney General’s office in a letter to the Maricopa Board of Supervisors on November 19 about election laws that were not being followed at polling places when it came to counting the votes.

The Lake campaign wants the election in Maricopa County to be redone.

Lake told Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Monday night, “We’re going to file some lawsuits because we won’t have elections run like they are in Third World countries.”

“This country has too much to save for our elections to be run that way,” she said.

Yes, and so be it.

Godspeed to Kari Lake. Let justice prevail.
